Default 30-year-old Lopez for first time in Top 20

Another 30-year-old at his peak position: Feliciano Lopez broke into the world's Top 20 for the first time this week.

His previous highest ranking was 21.

Welcome to the Top 20!

Sorry to crash the party, but Lopez was already ranked 20 in January 2005.

Damn! I didn't even realise Lopez was 30! Was thinking more like 28...

An achievement nonetheless. Back in 2005 he was in his theoretical prime. Plus he's a good chance to go above 20th before the end of the year. Lopez has the kind of game that will serve him well in his early 30s.

It's strange : he's 30 and never won anything great (no 500, no MS)
How is it possible to be in top 20 without winning a single tourney in 2011 ?
